Spring has arrived, which means that the forest will soon be full of adorable baby animals learning about the world.
It’s a rare treat to observe a baby animal in the wild, and can even be dangerous if you anger a protective mother. That’s why we gathered this epic collection of some of the cutest baby animals you can find in North America.
Often people come across babies and assume they are abandoned, but wildlife officials urge you to resist the urge to “rescue” babies, as their mothers are often nearby foraging, which means you’ll be doing more damage than good.
Enjoy the gallery, just make sure to take some breaks to give your mouth a rest from smiling.
